can see individual questions all sorted by topic. c-span.org/debates. on thursday, charlie cook, editor of the cook political report, called the debate a game changer for romney speaking at an event hosted by the national journal including pollsters. this is one hour, 15 minutes. >> good morning, everybody. if i could invite you to take your seats. we're going to go ahead and get started. thank you all for joining us here on this rather cumin thursday. thank you to everyone joining us on the lives dream -- live stream on nationaljournal.com and on c-span2. my name is victoria. i'm a senior vice president and it's a pleasure to welcome you to this wonderful discussion this morning. before we get started, just a few items to give you a sense of what is coming. charlie will be here in a moment and he will give us his take on last night's debate. he will be joined by two guests after who will also offer their perspectives on the debate and the upcoming elections. we are grateful to all of our participants this morning who will take questions so think about what you would like to ask
go under. >>guest: it is impossible. >>neil: charlie gasparino, thank you. >> in the meantime, for now, we are grateful that g.e. cap dallas and a.i.g. are not tanking just yet just as we are thankful the economic numbers are not soaring. the last few years that has been the drill: celebrateing today with spending numbers that remain not off the charts but they had us off the map. and a shrug to the latest g.d.p. news. it russia returning. but there is still a plus sign. steve moore has had enough. the best selling author says we should not be settling for recovery that is, a muddling. but we do, don't we? that is the dynamic. >>guest: i agree. one of the things that is disappointing about the election, i like the way that president obama ran four years ago when he ran on hope and change. now what he is running on is, this is the best we can do, america. we contrasted that, by the way, in our editorial this morning, with john f. kennedy in 1960 running against the eisenhower and nixon economy. at that time the economy was growing 2.5 to 3 percent and john f. kennedy famously s
the internals were on the ism. i talked to charlie evans this morning. he was one of the advocates of what we're calling the q.e. infinity program, the idea of keeping your foot on the accelerator, the central bank keeping its foot on the accelerator as long as employment remained above 7%. just a little background, the fed did not go with evans' specific proposal but did create an open-ended quantitative easing. so i asked him, how open-ended is it? what happens at the end of this year when operation twist ends? what happens to additions to the balance sheet? here's what he said. >> i frankly think it's going to take almost a year in order to see the type of improvement in labor markets that i'm expecting, just getting through the first half of next year with the headwinds that we're facing. i think that it's probably later in 2013 that we would get there. so in my opinion, we'd continue with those asset purchases until we see payroll employment more like 200,000, 250,000. >> continue at $85 billion into all of 2013? >> this is my recommendation. >> it's important to parse it just a little b
